By Bill McCauley
The newly-formed Bridgeville Planning and Zoning Commission held an
organizational meeting at town hall Thursday, Oct. 14. Mayor Jack
Dalton said afterward, "We're being asked to consider a major annexation
to the town and it's the job of the Planning & Zoning Commission to
make sure that it is accomplished. We need to be sure we have the
infrastructure in place to service that type of residential and commercial
development. So the plans we are making now are going to determine
what the quality of life will be in Bridgeville in the future.
"One thing that has been expressed as an outstanding need is a new
library. It is not too early for us to start plans for an undertaking
of that magnitude."
